–Our classroom is open. We are not improving on the existing model, we are part of the movement that is redefining elementary school.
— Every student keeps a portfolio of work to showcase their individual growth.
— We use the State Standards only as a touchstone for inspiring projects. We do not test nor assess based on those standards
— Every student spends time analyzing, integrating, and applying concepts to real-life learning opportunities. Compared to traditional schools, our day includes conflict resolution, community meetings, more writing and project-based assignments, zero fill-in-the-blanks worksheets and currently, no homework.
— Every student participates in Math, Science and Engineering, Language Arts, Storytelling, Music, Art, Environmental studies and Physical activity all facilitated by a credentialed teacher.
The Knowing Garden is a non-profit, private school open to anyone. Priority goes to students who apply during the Open Enrollment period.
